. >> if you are 55, you may want to listen. this will affect you. >> this is the debate over congressman ryan's plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. the president says that it needs to be tweaked. medicare, he says, needs some changes. we have been bellyaching about entitlements for years. ryan has a plan to do something about it. what is the problem? >> the problem is, he would, in effect, turn medicare into a voucher program. the president touched on it but did not stay with it. he allowed romney to get away with it. the voucher program would cause people to take a chunk of money from the government and go out and buy their own insurance. only a limited amount of money would be available. then the costs go up, the senior citizens, who get that, have to pay the differee. the guarantee would be gone. that is the substance of how they would deal with medicare and that is the way it would be. the president did not make the case as effectively as he should of on that. >> that is factually wrong. let me just say, that is factually wrong. under the romney plan, the amount of money the gov
traveling body has come up with worse. paul ryan is saying 70% of the country is free loaders. only 30% want to be but 70% are. why are they declaring war on the great bulk of the american people? i want to go to hugh ward with this. i've never seen where you slice -- in this case, ryan has 30% and -- >> chris, it's because they are repeating paul ryan is still repeating the kinds of lines and red meat rhetoric that he used for the conservative base when he was running for vice president, when he was running to get mitt romney's attention. that is not his audience now. his audience has shifted totally to the idealogs in the base and the people he grew up in janesville, wisconsin. that's who he should be talking about. >> we have videotape today. this is what is going on, steve. we're going back and digging up stuff. the tape always looks brand new and how he has to -- this is paul ryan on fox this sunday saying he doesn't have time to go over how he's going to find all of this tax money to make up for these cuts. here he is. >> how much would it cost? >> it's ref neutral. it doesn't cost --
and mr. ryan have given no details but have given a promise that they're going to reduce taxes by 20%, how does mitt romney deal with that tomorrow? what does he actually say that he has previously refused to say on explaining that? >> well, i think it's fascinating that they're treating mitt romney like he's the president and a lot in the media treat president obama like he's the challenger. what president george w. bush did when he was governor of texas is said i want to reduce taxes across the board and i want to make sure we have a balanced budget. he wasn't very specific during the campaign, and when he became president, he released a series of principles that went to capitol hill that said these are the measures that meet my -- >> here is the problem with that though, ron. people who have assessed his mathematics have deemed them to be completely impossible. michael, this is just in from mitt romney on how he'll pay for his massive 20% across the board tax cut. take a listen. >> everybody is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction and you can use your charitable deduction or you
folks in the paul ryan camp and they're saying look, this is his first time out, joe biden is going up against the likes of hillary clinton and barack obama. and he's a skilled debater. chris: sandbagging it. >> he beat sarah palin, right? >> well, what's to say about that? >> in private meetings when the iranians were here for the u.n. general assembly, they were dropping broad hints they were ready to make a nuclear deal after the election. take that with a grain of salt because the spreek leaders, the guy who makes the -- supreme leaders, the guy who makes the decisions this week were watching the iranian economy collapse so a deal may be imminent. chris: good news for everybody. when we come back, the big question of the week, who do you pick to win the vice-presidential debate this thursday be right back. >> "the chris matthews show" is brought to you by charles schwab. let's talk about the personal attention you and have you heard of the new dialing procedure for the 408 and 669 area codes? no, what is it? starting october 20, 2012, if you have a 408 or 669 number, you'll need to
the board. it's revenue neutral. we can't tell you how it's revenue neutral, because as paul ryan said, it will take too long. >> will obama go after him, like kennedy did in '94? he'll say, mr. governor, that's what people want. >> we can't talk about the president's strategy. he has to stay cool. if jim lehrer doesn't do it, if the moderator doesn't do, it then the president may have to step in, depending on how romney performs. but if romney doesn't really make the case strongly, the president doesn't necessarily have to jump on him. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer the question. >> let lehrer try it. >> but i think the obama campaign is leery of being -- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best defense? >> good offense. >> i would recommend the president. why did the cavalry leave the fort to fight the indians? do you know why? >> why. >> they're cavalry. thank you. >>> coming up, we have a new scoreboard. not like in the old days but spinners will be there. let's watch the power of the tweeter,
's be clear. paul ryan a week ago was asked about the math for this, and paul ryan, said, look, the math takes too long. well, mitt romney's solution is he just decided there wasn't math involved in this problem, and that's absolutely crazy. look, the only thing he outlined that he would cut in the budget is big bird. you know, he's taken the battle straight to "sesame street" and let wall street run hog wild. i mean, again, it was a masterful theatrical performance. it was fundamentally dishonest to the american people, and let's be clear, f you're willing to say anything to get elected president, willing to make up your positions and walk away from them, i think the american people have to understand how can they trust you if you are elected president. >> the vice presidential debate. joe biden coming up. he stepped in it a little bit this week with the comment about the middle class being buried the last four years. take a look. >> how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising
for congressman paul ryan? >> paul ryan, he took the gloves off and really hammer home some details about joe biden's record, 30-some years of opposing america's energy independence opportunities that we had. joe biden 30-some years ago, voted against the trans-alaska pipeline and henceforth has never supported steps to allow america to be energy independent. if paul ryan can detail what it is that he and governor romney propose to do to allow our private sector to go and thrive and create jobs, including energy independence, the audience will appreciate that. after the debate, paul ryan just needs to watch his back. that's my advice. you know, if things don't go his way, people will be looking for a scapegoat. i hope that people have learned over the last four years that, that doesn't do anybody any good, to throw candidates under the bus, when they did their best, they stood on their record, their principles and their convictions and when the inside baseball crap starts getting played out, that is horrible for the political system. >> greta: governor, thank you. >> greta: tomorrow night, go
to with contraception, but you had the same strong catholic condemnation of congressman paul ryan's budget because it cuts to the poor. that goes back to it comes down to what is the issue versus a party. a lot of political folks do not understand that, that you might have folks who will be against you on this issue because it does not aligned with their fate, but will support you on something else because it does. >> you see the infighting on the catholic church. the nuns on the bus -- that empowered latinos who grew up with nuns around them. >> political laziness -- some of these issues on religious a lever, one inwilllever the process. if people can pull one or two levers, we will lose out on the bigger picture. we need to make sure we to evaluate what each party is doing and ask what does the bigger picture look like. that's not be swayed by one issue or another so we forfeit 23 months of lawmaking and reengage when the campaign hits the trail again. >> religion is as active in this campaign as it was four years ago, the big reason for that is mitt romney is reluctant to talk about his fate, a
debate, duelling videos were released featuring president obama and paul ryan, but is either a game changer? and team romney seized on an unforced error made by joe biden on the campaign trial. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> kristen welker and peter alexander are with the obama and romney campaigns in these final hours before the first match-up, the debate tonight. we begin with kristen in nevada with the president. the president will travel to colorado in just a matter of hours. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. president obama will take off for denver in just a few hours. i'm told he'll have a little bit of down time with the first lady before the debate. he'll also do a walk through of the venue. here's how it's going to work. president obama will be given the first question. mitt romney will have the final word tonight. the debate will be broken up into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. i
've sequestered him for six days, six, so he can prepare for ryan. >> let me tell you, what ryan should do is not worry about a debate about medicare. he should go after the administration on foreign policy in libya. the stuff with china, the stuff we're having later on the money scandal. all of this stuff, this is about to blow up on obama. the libyan thing is something for ryan to get the, quote, expert on foreign policy, biden, on the defensive. let me tell you something, they won't be ready for that. >> they will now. you just said it on "hannity." >> they know nobody listens to me. doesn't platter. still won't be ready. >> sean: would have listened to you two years ago, they would have better in shape. >> democrats will think biden is charming. >> sean: i disagree. my money is on ryan big time. >> oh, yeah. >> sean: coming up, the left quickly pointed the finger at jim lehrer as if it was his fault that the president bombed at the debate. desperate democrats are blaming. they whined and called mitt romney a liar, but not sure they'll be able to do the same, use the same bag of tricks
. we can't afford to go back to the policie bush and dick cheney and paul ryan. but i say this as a strong obama supporter, he didn't win last night's debate. he did not meet up to our expectations. i think he let us all down. i hate to say it. look romney came to play. i think -- romney came to play and president obama stayed home. listen. i looked at it not just as an obama supporter but as somebody who loves debate and has made a living out of debating. and started out -- look, in -- i was on the debate team in high school. i the debate team -- in delaware. i was on the debate team at niagara university. when i went to college. i coached debate. my father judged high school in philadelphia. i debated on crossfire on the spin room, on msnbc. i've debated on the road with bob novack ay and bill crystal and mary madeline and you name them. armstrong williams. alan keys, i can't remember all of the conservatives i've been on the road with. so debate is sort of my thing. i'm sorry to say it, on points
the epa is recruiting kids in school. >> in days, it's their turn. joe biden and paul ryan set to go one-on-one. we'll take a look who has the upper hand, as well as the greatest moments ever in vp debate history. there are good ones. ♪ ♪ feels like the first time ♪ feels like the very first time ♪ ♪ it feels like the first time ♪ does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. is the same frequent heartburn treatment as plosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry.

on sunday. atlanta is this year's green bay. they strike from everywhere. matt ryan, rookie sensation himself, now in his fifth season playing like a vet, got three big stud receivers. washington, second to last at stopping receivers. not good. but they're also impressed with ryan. >> he's doing a great job so far. he's getting rid of the ball, going along with progression so what we've got do is tighten up on the back end. >> we can see on film when ryan has time he's able to help find his receivers so it's crucial for us to be able to get pressure to just the front four. >> another award for rgiii, offensive rookie of the month. sunday he became one of three rookies to pass for over 1,000 yards in his first four weeks. >>> we've got ourselves some great high school football tomorrow night. dunbar edging out chantilly for the game of the week. 12,000 of you voted. we'll have highlights of both of those games. also dematha versus good counsel. >>> ted leonsa always seems to have a smile on his face but the wizards are in the midst of a major rebuild. and the nhl lockout? mums the word
was in his wheel house when he was talking about the economy. >> paul ryan is cutting 716 for medicare. the exact same number in his budget which was passed by the republican house and the president never mentioned it. >> it does remind you that the last debate that mitt romney was seven months ago and the last debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key t
that paul ryan and i have a plan. it is not a repeat of the last four years because we cannot afford four more years of the last four years. it is an entirely different direction. it has five different parts. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, oil, nuclear. the president has cut in half the number of permits and licenses on federal lands and in federal waters. i will double them. the president has made it virtually impossible to build a coal industry in this country. we have a lot of coal and i want to use it. the want thet w keystone pipeline. i will get us that oil from canada. i will open up more trade. we can trade on a fair basis with people around the world. but when people steal our jobs and trade practices as a china has, i will hold them accountable. we cannot let our jobs get stolen unfairly. i want to make sure the people have the skills that they need to succeed. i want training programs that prepare people for the jobs of today. right now have 47 different federal training programs reporting to eight different agencies. think of the overhead and the
. >> yes. >> unlike the president. >> and his decades working in congress will help. i think paul ryan is outmatched. you know what? whenever we say this before the debate, we set them up. sam stein, do you agree? >> i thought the president did wonderful. no. i'm surprised there are 15% of the public who think he won the debate. you talk to any democrat, you know, they concede that he lost. you know, i think what you're getting at, joe, is one, democrats love to freak out. i mean, they are just born to freak out. if obama were to sneeze walking down the street, they would freak out about it. >> the president gave democrats something to freak out. this is not an overreaction. >> no, to finish my sentence, which is in this case -- >> he's ross perot suddenly. >> one was, obama just didn't show up, clearly. the second one is that romney did come off, presented himself as a sort of moderate, reasonable person whereas the past 15 months, people have been attacking him as this plutocrat and there's a little frustration on the part of democrats that obama didn't call him out on it, and two, t
of that issue. republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan promised to focus on the family that he and romney would allocate the proper resources to prevent gay men and woman from having equal rights. isn't that wonderful eddie? all right. did you see this story. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: road kill found in kentucky chinese restaurant. >> yeah. >> that's like having sushi? ohio. >> stephanie: an eastern kentucky inspector shut down the restaurant aftering finding road kill in the restaurant. >> what was it a possum. >> it was a deer. >> stephanie: customers complained to the health department after they saw employees dragging a dead deer into then restaurant. >> i don't know about sweet and sour venison. >> stephanie: the owner said he planned to feed the deer to his family. >> okay. sure. >> i'll have this kung pow possum. >> stephanie: so that happened. that's the name of john fugelsang's new show. hey, j.d. >> caller: hey. i watched the debate the other night, and i just kind of observed quite a bit. obama seemed like he was trying to keep
with you guys incidentally. we have had a blast here. but i remember when paul ryan made his speech that night, while the speech was still going on, we were watching the tweets come up pointing out that he had blatantly misrepresented one of the key stories that he told. and i'll tell you, i think that his inability to really give any kind of boost to the romney/ryan ticket has been shaped as much as anything else by the fact that he did a belly flop in that speech because the social media picked him up on it right away before the speech was even over. >> jennifer: it's an interesting thing. maybe the main stream media will be influenced by the twitter stream more than the reverse. >> cenk: we have got to take a quick break, when we come back john has an interesting question. what is the question we would ask of the debaters. >> cenk: we're back on current's politically direct coverage of the first presidential debate. it's coming up in just a little bit. going to be a lot of fun. john fugelsang has a question for all of us. >> john: as long as we're all celebrating
to be talking to obama supporter ohio congressman tim ryan, he will be our best this morning as well and we're going to be talking to former ambassador williamson to talk about the very detailed foreign policy issues as well as tara was suggesting so we'll take her up on that suggestion. ahead on "starting point" his biggest challenge in years. hugo chavez wins re-election and could have a big impact on what happens here in the united states. a live report from caracas straight ahead. >>> supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. a wedding you're looking at. not a brawl after a hockey game. it is a wedding and turned tragic. we'll tell you what happened. this was caught on tape. we'll share the terrible ending. what do you have in business? >> i have gas prices going up in california. higher and higher. california setting new records this week,ing misery at the pump. what's behind the jump and what they're doing to try to stop it. you're watching "starting point." mike rowe here at a ford dealer with a little q&a for fiona. tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford
ryan speaking at an american spectator gala back in november, which tinges of a certain tape from his running mate. >> before too long, we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we can become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> 30%. 47%. get it? the democrats are using this video to further the argument that the gop ticket has disdain for a large chunk of the country so our question to the table here today is do either of these video vault tapes mean anything going into tonight's debate? and i think the answer is no, but i do want to start by talking a little bit about this drudge tape. i mean it could not have been more hyped. i head the headline, fox news tonight, obama's other race speech. they also had in there the accent earthquake the anger, the accusations. they were flogging this thing from 3 p.m. on until it was finally released at 9 p.m. major flop. and let's remember, that this is not the first time that conserva
ryan. and what are we thinking here? is this going to be -- is everybody watching it? is it as exciting? is biden going to hold his own with paul ryan? >> it's high drama. you tune in because first of all everybody anticipates the possible gaffe that could come from joe biden. although in these circumstances he tends not to slip up. >> we got to go? >> they raised the bar for paul ryan. >> we'll see you next week in kentucky. throw it back to wolf right now. back to wolf blitzer. >>> pete, thanks very much for some unsolicited advicadvice. right now we're waiting on the president in madison, wisconsin. a huge crowd is there. will the president be on fire? will he be cool? will he be hot? standby. we're going to hear he's getting ready to start speaking there. we'll take him live when we come back. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. togethe
't like when he says wait until after the election before he tells us anything. ryan did the same thing this past sunday on the talk shows. he was asked to go more into specifics on the tax exemption. he said most people would not understand the math. how about giving me the arithmetic? host: what are you looking for tomorrow? caller: i would like to see how romney will spin his comments about the 40% of americans being freeloaders. my dad was a world war ii veteran. when he came back, he defended of the gi bill for all home loans. i guess he would be a freeloader according to romney. host: let's look at an article -- that sometimes. an independent caller in wisconsin, bill. caller: i am planning on watching tomorrow night. there's a lot of questions that i would be asking if i were there, of both of them. why have the democrats nor the republicans looked at our social security, which is going under? what has happened to all the ious that they have taken money from social security? when are the democrats and republicans going to decide to have to pay all of these back? that's the reason
as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class families in america benefit more from any limit of deductions. >> well, a limit of deductions actually would hurt the wealthy to the extent that we're talking about a deduction that the wealthy take in very, very large amounts. a limit on those deductions makes some sense in terms of a progressive tax system. >> what do you think the plan for the president will be tonight? terms of tax reform, mr. reich? >> the president has said that he wants the so-called buffett rule that is a minimum tax particularly in regard t
the ryan-esque vision on medicare and taxes. it's hard to say what else he displayed passion about. i have felt all year this is the biggest hole in their campaign. i don't think he has given americans a clear sense of what he would do to make the next four years better than the last four years. there was almost no second-term agenda. things that have been -- what is it that obama himself wants to do? certainly in this next debate he's going to be more aggressive. can he be more persuasive about his own plans? >> and mitt romney ought to be more aggressive in pushing the president to talk about his agenda. because of course the president is tying him to the ryan budget, for better or worse, what is he going to do about medicare, what's he going to do about tax reform. it is true that romney hasn't put a lot of meat on the bones when it comes to what he would do to reform the tax code. what deductions would he cap. he started getting at that a little bit this past week. well, then why doesn't he push the president for some more details and the president can push back? i think with the ameri
-president outright admit that this middle class has been buried the last four years. and his opponent, paul ryan, jumping all over that comment. >> this is deadly ernest. how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class who has been buried the last four years -- how in lord's name, can they justify raiding their taxes with these tax cuts? >> vice-president biden just today said that the middle class, over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging, by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] of course, the middle clationz class has been buried, they are buried by regulations and buried by taxes and borrowing, they are being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> greta: so will the obama campaign take a political hit with that one, mr. speaker? it's dangerous to talk these days? >> look, it's pretty hard to take anything joe biden says seriously. but if you look at it from -- there are two parts to t. he admits that in the last four years, that's the obama ye
